Let Me In

2008's Swedish sleeper hit, Let The Right One in, gets the American film treatment this weekend and stars our new favorite young actress, Chloe Moretz, just off her big staring role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass. Moretz stars as Abby, a twelve year old vampire who has been twelve for a very long time, who reluctantly befriends Owen, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee, a fellow apartment complex resident who is bullied at school and has no friends. Richard Jenkins plays Abby's father who must sacrifice himself to protect Abby from the local police when one of his dinner procurements goes horribly wrong. As remakes go this is a good one with more money for effects but it does not surpass the original film in any way. This is a great original story that everyone should see and will surprise you on just how good vampire stories can be.
